It mentions on the back of the book that it is a "reinvention of the fairy tale in the the tradition of CS Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia". I thought to myself when I read it, okay, should be a decent book, let's give her a go.
Joran loses his wife.
He's accused of her something and put her aside.
She didn't make it home to her mom, and so he headed off to see whatever happened to her.
Along the way he meets a wolf, who as one who can talk to animals, he gets acquainted with.
The wolf accompanies him on his journey.
and I won't say anything more lest I give away the story.
I have to admit, I have a hard time knowing what to say about this book in regards to recommending it or not. It was NOT my cup of tea. I would not willingly read it again, nor would I be interested in reading another in the series. Too much "mind-stuff" going on in this book and in my opinion it was not like Narnia type literature at all.(beyond having a talking animal and good persona in it).
